    Rescued from the boneyard SA-250 on a fully equipt trailer (My Wife's Explorer cries every time I hitch up)
    Trailblazer 301G (can't touch the SA-200 for stick)
    Arcair K-4000 A.K.A "The Hissing Cobra"
    HF- 251 TIG box for the TB with a Weldcrap torch, Yes I weld aluminum
    More than a toolbox full of stuff on an F-350 that is way to small

          OK, now it makes sense.

            Just curious:
            How many amps does it take to do that? What size, color tungsten? Filler dia?
            I'll never get a chance to do it, but would like to know how.

              I had the Syncro cranked to 300 but didn't mash the pedal. Filler was 1/8" 5356, tungsten was a 5/32" green, I like orange but we were all out.

                Tozzi:
                Thanks. I'm surprised with all the new colors, that green still shows up (I saw you prefer orange). Since I have a lifetime supply of red and green, that's where I'll be. Just a hobby guy enjoying the superb control of TIG.
